Field Trip Friday
This past Tuesday, we were able to visit our local dairy farm. We were able to learn how they raise the cows from birth to when they are milking cows. This farm raises Jersey cows for milk and ice cream. It takes them about one and a half hours to milk 180 cows. They milk them twice a day. Their milk and ice cream tastes great and fresh. We love it! Here are some pictures from our trip.
This is a 3 day old calf:
